Abstract

In October 1910 Berlin University was festively decorated for the occasion of the centenary of its foundation. In the ceremony on October 11 in the new Great Hall the Kaiser wanted personally to take to the lectern. Wilhelm II seldom missed such an opportunity to present himself to his people as their true sovereign lord, and on this occasion as the ‘great friend and patron of the sciences’.
